Did You Know?


A Christmas themed version of the regular theme song was recorded, replacing the regular summer vacation activities with Christmas vacation activities. Due to this, Candace's line "Mom, Phineas and Ferb's making a title sequence!" has been changed to "Mom, Phineas and Ferb's making a Christmas special!". See more »


When the boys ask Isabella if she is sad that Santa put Danville on the naughty list, she says that she celebrates Hanukkah. However, earlier when Phineas asked everyone if they wrote letters to Santa asking him for things, Isabella said that she did; and when he asked if they wrote Thank You notes for the presents they received from Santa, she said that she didn't. Why would she write letters to Santa and receive presents from him if she celebrates Hanukkah? See more »

This is one of the biggest holiday disgraces I have ever seen!
3 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

I like "Phineas and Ferb", but this Christmas special sucks! I mean, one of the reasons is because of it's more dark and dramatic approach especially in this musical number called "Where did we go wrong?". And you know what else? It did not follow the formula of the show. It also had some atrocious dialog as well! There are two that I find just downright pathetic! One is when Baljeet encounters this girl named Wendy Stinglehopper and she kisses him when they're under mistletoe, and then he kisses her back and then says "Later!". Later?! Later?!! That was just so weak! Some better lines could've been "Happy Holidays Toots!" or "Merry Christmas Baby!" and another very good line could've been, "Now that's a Christmas present!". The other bad line is when after Phineas says "Santa thinks everyone in Danville's been naughty?" Buford says "Now that's just nonsense!". Two better lines could've been "Bah Humbug!" or "Oh, We're Scrooged!". The other thing about this special that sucks is the plot! How many times have you seen a Christmas special where the plot is saving Christmas?! During the time of Christmas, don't waste your time watching this disgrace of a Christmas special. I also didn't like that fact that Candace didn't suffer any comic misfortunes like she usually does! That kind of defeats the whole purpose right?! When years pass and if other Christmas specials will be released, I would say something like "The first Christmas special is garbage! Now you might be saying this is the first Christmas special of "Phineas and Ferb" so, be easy on it. But no! It sucks! It sucks from a straw!
